Waypoint Robotics Moves to Larger Location

​October 23, 2019

Waypoint Robotics announced today that they are moving to a larger manufacturing facility in Nashua, NH. This move is prompted by the need for more manufacturing and design testing space.

​In spring 2019, Waypoint launched their new MAV3K robot which features the ability to move up to 1360 kg (3000 ​lbs). This larger automonous mobile robot approximately four times bigger than it’s smaller sibling the Vector. As a result, manufacturing and testing of the MAV3K requires more space to ​run this platform.

“The response for our Vector & MAV3K AMRs has been strong and we quickly outgrew our Merrimack, NH location. We need space to ramp up production as customers transition from pilot programs into scaling their robot fleets” says CEO & Co-Founder, Jason Walker. “We also feel fortunate to remain in southern New Hampshire, an area that has been incredibly supportive and valuable in fostering our growth.”  

The company also wanted a larger space for customer demonstrations and to be able to host local tech and STEM events. For example, on Tuesday, October 29th, Waypoint will host the third stop on the New Hampshire Tech Alliance (NHTA) Listening Tour designed to foster new ideas, connections, and partnerships. For more information about the Listening Tour ​or if you would like to visit Waypoint Robotics to learn more ​their products, call 603-288-1605 or email  info@waypointrobotics.com ​
